Did you know that one in four adults experience mental illness?
Many more of us know or care for people who do. The issue of mental health is being talked about more and more today but with suicide being the most common cause of death for men aged 20-49 years old in England and Wales, there's still a lot to be done.
That is why here at Up To Speed, we have chosen to support Andy’s Man Club. Andy’s Man Club is a fantastic charity which aims to halve the number of suicides of men under 45. Creator of the #itsokaytotalk campaign, the charity runs weekly talking groups for men across the UK to get people talking about mental health. You can find out more about where they meet here
We will be taking part in a number of activities over the next 12 months to help raise awareness of mental health and importantly raise funds to help support all those in need. Check back soon to find out more and get involved.
